Gillard justifies her government’s $25 million propaganda campaign to sell her carbon tax by claiming it is an “information” campaign designed to ease anxiety. That is a crock. From what I have seen so far, it is designed to promote renewables, “clean energy”.
People are concerned about the impact this tax will have on their livelihood and their hip pocket. This does nothing to allay this fear, so Gillard’s excuse does not fly. How does hearing about the government’s impression of the grandeur of renewable energy convince average Australians that they’re not going to be hit as hard and that their jobs are safe?
It is not an information campaign, it’s only purpose is to further the political prospects of Gillard and the labor party. We want our $25 million back!
